I don’t have much to say about this photo, other than I was going through my, now, decades old digital archives and ran across this awesome picture. Jim didn’t feel comfortable directing some of the action sequences for the first film, but he did it well and actually enjoyed the experience. He was a great guy who gave us so much. For that reason I felt like sharing this image. Now I feel like watching this one. Sounds like my Sunday movie is is now chosen.
Today on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Usagi Yojimbo is featured. This tickles me beyond all feathers! Not only is he the main character, the story is done in a VERY Kurosawa style, AND written by Stan Sakai the creator of Usagi. I’ve always enjoyed the Usagi stories in the comics, and whenever he was brought into any incarnation of the TMNT, but this one is very special. It’s on Google Play right now. Check it out for yourself.
Some great new merch based on the original film. Mrs. Multiverse, and I, want the new baby Turtles set. Pizza! Pizza! So adorable. NECA has really put out some quality products. I wish I could afford them all.
This is a wonderful documentary on the full history of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It’s a great, and informative, watch. You can’t beat the rental price of $2.99 either. I was onboard the TMNT train back in 84, when I discovered the 2nd printing of issue number one at my favorite comic book shop, Comics & Comix, in Citrus Heights, California.
In the latest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles episode (Season 4 – Episode 20), Oroku Saki goes a bit too far with a huge dose of Mutagen. Without spoiling anything, Shredder is now the Super Shredder, not that he calls himself that. A hostage is taken, and Master Splinter must face this threat along side his sons. April does some pretty cool stuff too. Watch it for yourself, here: http://www.nick.com/ninja-turtles/episodes
Playing around a bit with my progs last night, and came up with this.
From time to time I enjoy placing myself, much like I did when I was an over imaginative youngling, into the worlds that I enjoyed. While my imagination isn’t up to the same high levels of my former self, I find it relaxing to create myself into old favorites.
So here at Quantum Multiverse, as you might have discovered, we are geeks. As geeks we partake in geek media. No surprises there 😉 This is just a list of current shows, TV-YouTube-Netflix-Amazon Prime-ETC, that keep us going. There are movies, audio books/plays, Podcasts (& SMODcasts), Comics, Blog posts, Books, Toys, Games, and what-not that are also a factor. I may get to breaking those down at some point but this is a simple and easily digested post and a good place to begin.
This show was my weekly go-to show about Star Wars news for a year now. The host, Ken Napzok, is moving on to bigger and better things but I’ll keep tuning in to see what the Popcorn Network has in store.
The oldies are still the best. This series holds a special place in my heart and in my Netflix que. I’ll also watch it on Saturday nights on MeTV (over the air digital antenna channel)
I’ve fallen behind on my view of this show but it is a pretty great show about a young Ninja who’s actual special ability is turning foes into friends.
Since Top Gear (BBC) is now defunct, I found a new appreciation for classic cars and the art that Danny’s crew can create with them.
We recently began our Amazon Prime account and this is one of the shows that we stream from there. I like it better than the original Stargate SG-1 for the depth that it has.
A great YouTube channel that contains the Jedi Council and more.
Wonder Woman! Another MeTV Saturday night staple. Lynda Carter was one of my first crushes and her smile still makes my evening better. My wife has that effect on me every day 🙂
Kevin Smith and the guys at the Secret Stash in New Jersey. I can’t get enough of this program.
This is one of those shows that I can watch all the way through the eight seasons and then start it all over again.
I found RetroBlasting on YouTube in the Autumn of 2014. I can’t say enough great things about this channel. They cover a very wide variety of vintage toys, cartoons and movies. The sardonic wit and the clever comedic element is what keeps me coming back for more of their videos. I now know shit about My Little Pony than I ever knew I wanted to know. #RetroBlasting has reinforced my geekness, affirmed my nerdiness, and informed my dorkieness. For that, I thank them.
This one is fun to make fun of. Saturday nights on MeTV has a block of time reserved for this great old show.
Chuck is a fun, Sci-Fi take on a Nerd gaining superhuman abilities. As the intersect, Chuck, is a powerful tool in the international spy scene.
This show is still one of the best written and directed shows of its kind. It could almost be a story created by Stan Lee. I watch this on Netflix, over and over.
I am speechless. THIS is Daredevil. It’s like Frank Miller opened up his arteries and out sprang this Netflix series, magically.
Although not as good (doesn’t even touch it) as the previous Avengers cartoon, this has just enough obscure characters involved that keeps my interest, for the most part.
At first I didn’t like this version of the TMNT. I was a huge fan of the 2003 version of the show. After a few episodes I was sold. The show pays homage to old cartoon, including the 2003 version of the title.
